Mid Lachlan Landcare was recently successful in obtaining funding for a 3.5 year part time position for a Local Landcare Coordinator. Our committee has appointed Tracee Burke in this position and she’s currently transitioning into the job. Welcome Tracee!
Tracee is from Gooloogong and has been involved with Kangarooby Catchment Landcare for a number of years. She is passionate about farming and conservation, and holistically manages a small beef cattle property. She is also specialised in local native plants, seed collection and propagation, and has a good understanding of local Landcare issues.
Tracee hopes to increase support for the smaller Landcare groups in our area, and will work with them to increase their knowledge, activities and membership, and will also assist our Grazing Project Officer Scott Hickman with our successful local project Growing the Grazing Revolution.
Stay tuned for information about upcoming projects and events. Our aim over the coming months and years will continue to be focussed on delivering positive environmental change through education and on-ground works. If you have any questions about Landcare activities in the district, please feel free to contact us via email, you can also subscribe to our mailing list, blog post via our website, or Like us on Facebook.
